2021 Landscape improvements.
2022 Overgrown shrubbery and trees along the southeast border were removed or trimmed and the area was excavated in preparation of the future installation of a fence and trees. Ten arborvitae trees were planted along the western end of the southeast border.
2023 Another 21 arborvitae trees were planted along the southwest border starting from the trees we planted last year and ending about the half way point along the border. A fence was installed from the end of the trees and extended to meet the wrought iron fence at Nixon Road. The covered bench was cleaned and painted.
Suggestions for future improvement can be sent to the Secretary.
